This has got me intrigued. I have a lot of respect for Godin and this is supposedly their best work. Opinions?
Not a fan of hairline cracks, especially in supposedly their best work.
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

I don't think I've ever owned a bolt on neck guitar that hasn't had a hairline crack somewhere around the neck pocket, but that one is a doozy.
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.

Played a SVL Strat the other day. Felt lovely. Just recently I played a a pre-CBS Jaguar (or was it a Jazzmaster?). Anyway, that neck felt similar in its played-inidness. Just lovely.

The SVL chap is also Pete Townsend's tech. Production halts when The Who are on tour.
